Do More with Location Sharing

Mapsted’s Maps framework offers several location sharing options so users can interact with family, friends or colleagues. With location sharing, users can:

  • Send their real-time location to others on their contact list
  • Pin their parking spot on the digital map for easy retrieval
  • Create a pin and share it to meet up with friends at a specific location
  • Set a duration for how long they would like to use location sharing

Location Pins

With location pins users can easily mark a specific location and share it for easy coordination. Users can also send messages along with their location. For example, visitors can:

  • Create a pin at the food court on Level 3 of a shopping centre and share that location pin with several friends, along with a message that reads: "Meet me at 1pm for lunch."
  • Visit different spots in a large venue while still being aware of each other's location, by displaying each other’s locations on their maps.

Frequently Asked Questions

Indoor location determines and tracks the position of objects or individuals within an enclosed space, such as buildings, malls, airports, or other structures. Unlike outdoor location tracking that relies on GPS signals, indoor location technologies utilize various methods to overcome the challenges of limited or absent GPS signals indoors.

Location sharing is voluntarily sharing your current or real-time location information with others. It involves allowing others to track or view your whereabouts for a specific time. Location sharing typically occurs through mobile devices, such as smartphones or tablets, which have built-in GPS capabilities or utilize other positioning technologies.

There are several location sharing apps available that can be used for indoor purposes. The "best" app can vary depending on specific needs and preferences. However, Mapsted’s Maps framework offers several location sharing options so users can interact with family, friends or colleagues and it is one of the best systems on the market today. Send messages, pin contacts, locations, parking spots, coordinate meetings and know where members of your party are.

GPS technology relies on satellite signals to determine location, making it primarily designed for outdoor use where the GPS receiver has a clear line of sight to multiple satellites. GPS signals can be significantly weakened or completely blocked when indoors due to the obstruction caused by walls, roofs and other structures. Essentially, it’s not meant to be used inside.

Tracking indoor locations can be achieved using various technologies and methods such as Wi-Fi-based positioning, BLE beacons, inertial navigation, ultrasound or infrasound, computer vision and hybrid positioning. Mapsted’s system is hardware free, scalable with a one- to three-metre Blue Dot accuracy and has processing speeds of milliseconds. Clearly, our system is one of the best in the market.
